I suppose some camera owners recklessly fail to keep the cardboard box that their camera came in. Jeez, what's wrong with those people. :-)
Hey, quit having fun! :-) Cameras are supposed to be oh-so-serious.
[Insert random anti-Canon diatribe here.]
Footay: Yes, I understand this is a ILC. And yes, I know that neither of available (in the USA) kits lens is new. But the entire review appears to only mention one kit lens in two sentences. No discussion of the performance/build/value of either lens, or the handling of the body & lens. Yet the review addresses potential buyers new to MFT, the kind of folks that do not now own ANY MFT lens, and would want to know how the body & lens will work together. Perhaps this is consistent with other ILC reviews in this respect, but nonetheless, it seems like a very poor approach to issuing a reasonable and comprehensive review. The review as it is currently written, is 99.99% is about the body, and the title of the review should make that clear.
I agree. I don't think that any of DPR's ILC reviews include a review of the quality of the kit lens. Many buyers mostly, or exclusively, use the kit lens, so the quality of that lens is very important. DPR gave a Gold Award to one camera that has a (tested elsewhere) particularly poor kit lens.
mpgxsvcd: It is astonishing to me that Panasonic has great 4K video in a sub $800 camera while Canon and Nikon still have not produced a true DSLR with 4K video. It almost seems like Canon and Nikon have abandoned the video market.
That is fine there still is plenty of market for stills cameras today. However, that probably won’t be the case 2-3 years from now. Hopefully, Canon and Nikon can play catch up by then.
Panasonic wants to sell 4K televisions, so they have more of a self-interest in putting 4K in their cameras.
Canon currently has the EOS-1D C 4K hybrid-DSLR, and many professional non-DSLR video products.
DSC-HX90V: The marketing departments of camera companies excel at creating catchy model names. :-)
Cameras displaying the Likea brand name are also pretty suspicious. -jk
Hmmm. Another benefit of large-sensor compact cameras.
Brought to the USA by popular demand? :-)
These tripods are small, but carrying a table around everywhere isn't very convenient. :-)
Whitesands: The fuji is an excellent camera even before the firmware and is the top mirrorless out there...It's strange but some folks that own other brands attach their ego to the camera they own and when they hear stories of nikon and canon full frame shooters selling everything to go with the Fuji X-T1 they strangely get jealous or envious or something and then they troll and attack...
Yes, everyone is jealous of the brand of camera that you own - LOL.
I wish the price was as "compact" as the camera. :-)
(It has a 1" sensor, but costs more than many APS-C DSLRs.)
Yesterday, I saw another television ad for Samsung washing machines. When people think of Samsung brand, that's the kind of thing they think of, not cameras.
Samsung lacks brand identity in the camera sector. The notion that Samsung is going to somehow overtake Canon/Nikon is hysterical.
This lens is impossible, magical, innovative, revolutionary, groundbreaking... :-)
Threcats: With a near 50% initial defect rate, cheap plastic construction, abysmal af performance, and an inferior imaging sensor Canon deserves best dog in show.
This opinion piece includes an impossible amount of hyperbole. :-)
forpetessake: Sony is soon going to make Canon a third party lens manufacturer.
With the introduction of the a7R II, Sony's ILC market share may skyrocket from it's current 11%, all the way up to 12%.
"I couldn't help but feel like a kid in a candy shop"
There was no candy for people waiting for an updated (more affordable)Sony APS-C camera. (a6100? a7000?)
Every company claims to listen to their customers. That's a standard business-speak cliché.
That said, Sony is doing some good things.
"In terms of noise reduction we’re learning a lot from our competitors about the best way to do it. We need to learn more. And color reproduction, too."
It's nice that Sony has acknowledged these problem areas, and is working on them.
